I’m a theory dork, which means I don’t know much about web development. The following all helped me tremendously with setting the website up:

  • The site was built on Jekyll, which is great for websites like this with static content.
  • The comments system is built with Staticman, a great open-source service. I host the Staticman code on a Heroku app. I struggled a bit to set it up, so these tutorials were helpful, both for their instructions and for some code I borrowed stole.
